Fun with the Grandpas

We were sooooo blessed to have my dad and Jack's dad stay with us over the weekend so they could be a part of Mailee's blessing. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH dads for coming out to Ohio and spending some time with us. It was a whirlwind trip for them and we tried to cram in as much as we could in a short amount of time. We loved having you both and we already miss you!
We went to Jack's school and got the grand tour of OCPM.
We went to Kirtland.
It was nice having our dads here so we could get some pictures together with the family too. :o) This was Jack's first time out to Kirtland since we've been out here.

Inside room where School of the Prophets met.
Out to dinner at yummy Texas Roadhouse.
Mailee's blessing day.
Mailee was such a little princess in her beautiful blessing dress! Thanks again Char for the gorgeous dress.

More Updates

Ok, as promised, here are some more pictures and news. While it was a little colder we were trying to figure out things to do at home to keep Jaxon busy.
We did some "sensory" type activities.
Colored rice
And guess what Jaxon's looking at outside our bedroom window here...
Can't believe this is the view of our "backyard." I love it! :o)
And Mailee is showing off lots of expressions.

And this one is my favorite!
Mailee's eyes are still blue and we can't wait to see what color they end up being. You can tell they're still pretty light in this pic.
We've been enjoying time outside lately since the weather has been REALLY nice...in the high 70s even...and Jaxon has been loving the swings at the park. We're having fun though and enjoying our time out here in Ohio. I love spending my time with these kiddos!

Quick Update

It's so hard to get on the blog more often to update, so here's a bunch of just random updates and info on the fam...and of course some pictures too. :o)
Well, Mailee is just growing and growing. We went in for her two month appointment in February and she weighed in at 11 lbs 7 oz and was 22.5 inches long putting her in the 69th percentile for weight and 58th for height. She's smiling away and even trying to "talk" to us. She is a little bit of a diva and definitely knows when she's not being held and rocked and lets us know that she's not happy about it. :o)
Jaxon is also just growing and learning new words every day and surprises us everyday with what he knows. He has also started imitating us...especially when we're disciplining him. It's hard not to laugh out loud when he's mimicking the ends of your sentences and saying "ookaaaay" when we're done.
How can you not smile at this kid though, eh? He's such a cutie! He loves to "share" his toys with Mailee and ends up piling all his toys on her when we're not looking.
I have more pictures and news to post, but it's feeding time for Mailee, so more to come! :o)
